WEST HAVEN, Conn. – University of New Haven Director of Athletics Deborah Chin is proud to announce Ted Hotaling as the Chargers next head men’s basketball coach. Hotaling becomes the ninth head coach in program history and will begin his duties on Apr. 1, 2010.

A former New Haven and Yale University assistant, Hotaling most recently spent five seasons as an assistant at Eastern Kentucky University. While at EKU, the Colonels enjoyed a number of record-setting seasons, including two postseason runs. Hotaling’s main responsibilities at EKU included working with the guards and coordinating the program’s recruiting efforts.

In 2007, the Colonels earned a berth to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship tournament. EKU was selected to the College Basketball Invitational this season after amassing a 20-11 regular season record. The Colonels have been one of the best offensive teams in the country during Hotaling’s tenure as well. This season EKU ranked in the top 10 in three-point field goals made, turnovers per game and assist/turnover ratio. The Colonels also broke the Ohio Valley Conference record for three-pointers made in back-to-back seasons (2008-09 and 2009-10).

“I am honored to be named the head men’s basketball coach at the University of New Haven. I want to thank Debbie Chin for giving me the opportunity to lead the program.

Throughout the entire process it was evident that this is an impressive university with great support and I am excited to start working right away,” said Hotaling Wednesday afternoon.

Hotaling and his wife, Keely Garden, have two children – Owen and Susan.
